canbus or not

I have a 07 psd and am looking to put in hid headlights and fog lights. I talked to another person that told me I needed a canbus ballast, is this true? Also I have heard stories on other forums about the headlight flickering and this other person claimed that it was eliminated by using a canbus ballast. I'm stump!! Any advise would be appreciated.

Nope, "CANbus" is not needed. Your kit does however need to be setup correctly to work with the truck for other reasons. That is probably where the confusion and/or inappropriate recommendation comes from.

Just shoot us a PM or an EMAIL with whichever of our kits you are interested in and we'll get you setup right.
